Conor Oberst & Dawes Tour

Bright Eyes singer Conor Oberst just announced plans for a new record, Upside Down Mountain, to be released on May 20 via Nonesuch. To support his new venture, Oberst is hitting the road with rock band Dawes. The tour starts on May 8 in Saxaphaw, NC at the Haw River Ballroom, and then continues through Asheville, NC; Atlanta, Ga; Nashville, TN; Jacksonville, FL; Orlando, FL; Gulf Shores, AL (for a show at The Hangout Festival on May 16), and more. The two bands have a history, with Oberst and Dawes first performing together at the Newport Folk Festival in 2012 (perhaps they’ll get together again for this year’s festival). Tickets for the shows are on sale now.
